the November race:

    Former President Barack Obama and left-wing rocker Bruce Springsteen teamed up for a new podcast, Renegades: Born in the U.S.A., featuring the two discussing a variety of topics, including “race, fatherhood, marriage, and the state of America.” “On the surface, Bruce and I don’t have a lot in common. He’s a white guy from a small town in Jersey. I’m a black guy of mixed race born in Hawaii. He’s a rock-n-roll icon. I’m not as cool,” Obama said. “In our own ways, Bruce and I have been on parallel journeys trying to understand this country that’s given us both so much.” Springsteen shared a preview of the podcast on Monday, which ended with a series of images, including Obama stumping for President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, whom the rocker supported in the lead-up to the election. He eventually went on to perform at Biden’s primetime inauguration celebration. Watch below:  Bruce joins President...
    After more than three months since the November election and dozens of days in court, former Republican Rep. Claudia Tenney is headed back to Congress. A New York State supreme court  justice ruled on Friday that Oneida County and the State Board of Elections can certify its final results for New York's 22nd Congressional Race, which has Tenney up by 109 votes over Democratic incumbent Rep. Anthony Brindisi. HOUSE REPUBLICAN RE-ELECTION CHAIR SAYS BIDEN EXECUTIVE ORDERS MAKING RETAKING THE HOUSE EASISER FOR GOP While there are likely legal challenges ahead – Brindisi’s lawyers are appealing the ruling to the Appellate Division, saying certification should be paused until after a hand count - the decision means Tenney will be seated in House of Representatives.

    A number of people who took part in the pro-Trump mob that overran the U.S. Capitol last month in opposition to the presidential election results did not vote in the race, a new analysis has found.  According to CNN, which reviewed voting records from states where rioters were arrested or had a history of residence, eight of those facing charges in connection to the Jan. 6 insurrection did not cast a ballot in the November race. Former U.S. Marine Donovan Crowl was one of those people, according to CNN. Crowl is reportedly a member of the right-wing extremist group Oath Keepers. The group, which the network described as a “self-styled militia organization,” has a reputation for trying to recruit service members and veterans. Crowl’s mother told CNN that the veteran said “they were going to overtake the government if they...tried to take Trump's presidency from him.” She also said Crowl...
    The FIA dealt the 2021 F1 season an early blow when they postponed the Australian GP to the business end. While it normally serves as the curtain-raiser for F1, this time the home fans can only catch a glimpse of their hero Daniel Ricciardo on 21st November’21. But Melbourne isn’t completely canceling on international sports. The city is hosting the Australian Open which will begin on 8th February. If all goes well, it will erase some apprehension on conducting a race there later on in the Calendar.

    Democratic Senate nominees Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff It’s very unusual to see a non-November election that is for all the marbles, but that’s what’s on tap on Tuesday in the two Senate runoff elections in Georgia. If Democratic candidates Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock both manage to defeat their Republican opponents, the Democratic Party will have a Senate majority (thanks to Kamala Harris’ tiebreaking vote), and along with Joe Biden and a Democratic-controlled House, a governing trifecta. If either or both lose, Mitch McConnell will retain control of the Senate and will be able to block not just Biden’s legislative agenda but his judicial nominations and even his cabinet appointments. No pressure, then, right? The two Senate contests in November were very close, as was, of course, the presidential race in Georgia, which Biden narrowly won. Georgia has a unique law requiring a runoff in races where no...

    Bradley Cortright November 10, 2020 0 Comments Questions still remain about whether and when President Donald Trump will concede the election to President-elect Joe Biden (D). But, speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said, “I think we ought to quit all the hand wringing and not act like this is extraordinary. We’re going to get through this period.” “And we’ll swear in the winner on January 20, 2021, just like we have every four years since 1793,” he added. #BREAKING: Sen.

    By Carl O'Donnell NEW YORK (Reuters) - Drugmakers and research centers around the world are working on COVID-19 vaccines, with large global trials of several of the candidates involving tens of thousands of participants well underway. The following is what we know about the race to deliver vaccines to help end the coronavirus pandemic that has claimed over 1.25 million lives worldwide: Who is furthest along? U.S. drugmaker Pfizer Inc and German partner BioNTech SE are the first to announce data from a late-stage clinical trial. The next data releases will likely be from U.S. biotech firm Moderna Inc , possibly in November, and from Britain-based AstraZeneca Plc with the University of Oxford in November or December. Johnson & Johnson says it is on track to deliver data this year. What happens in these trials? The companies are testing their vaccines against a placebo - typically saline solution...
    The moment came because other drivers pitted ahead of him, but Jimmie Johnson’s brief lead Sunday at Phoenix in his final NASCAR race nonetheless sparked a strong reaction on social media. The seven-time champion is stepping away after a 2020 season in which he struggled to keep up with top rivals. He missed the playoffs entirely. Midway through Stage 2 on Sunday, the words “new leader, No. 48” were uttered for perhaps the final time in reference to Johnson.

    Soon after the elite American media, from CNN to MSNBC and the Associated Press, called the presidential election for former Vice President Joe Biden, Hollywood celebrities were posting social media messages about being brought to tears, dancing, and overjoyed at the news. There were a lot of tears. “I’m so so so relieved. Congrats @JoeBiden I am crying at the thought of @KamalaHarrisas Vice President of the United States – wow wow wow,” said actress Elizabeth Banks.

    Olivier Douliery/AFP/Getty Images Amid growing pressure for news outlets to declare former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris the victors over President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, throngs of Twitter users illustrated their frustration by naming others who have “called the race for Biden.” So far, Decision Desk and Vox have projected Biden as the winner, and while there appears to be no way for Trump to achieve the 270 electoral votes to retain the White House, other major outlets have resisted declaring a winner. Despite frequent and well-founded explanations for their reticence to do so, the networks were not spared blistering mockery by Twitter users, who posted progressively more absurd — and joking — examples of others who they say have declared Biden the winner. Everyone around the world has called the race for @JoeBiden but our media. #CallTheRace — Lesley Abravanel???? (@lesleyabravanel) November 7,...
    Drew Angerer/Getty Images, Kyle Rivas/Getty Images Pressure has begun to build for networks to call a Joe Biden win for the 2020 election — with MSNBC’s own Joe Scarborough calling it “preposterous” that they have not called the race yet. Several journalists and pundits have posted to Twitter begging the networks to make the call, as Biden was already declared the next president of the United States by the Decision Desk and other projections. Even network news team members have taken to social media to put pressure on them to make the official call: I don’t know, but it sure seems to me like not calling the race when the outcome is obvious in states like PA and NV gives the president more time to spout misinformation. — Nate Silver (@NateSilver538) November 6, 2020 There is no reason why the networks are not calling Pennsylvania for Biden right now. Anyone who knows the...
    On Friday morning, after a seemingly endless ballot count, an anxious nation got the news it had long-awaited and many desperately hope is true: Joe Biden is the President-elect of the United States.

Hide Yes, indeed, the outlet whose current lead story about Lana Del Rey includes inspired lines about “a glorious, emasculating hook” and “feeling misunderstood in the commercial world of feminism” was the first news outlet to tell thousands of Twitter users that Biden is the projected victor in the presidential election, as per Decision Desk HQ (whom Pop Crave cited in its tweet).

    Getty (Designed by Dwilson) Trump and Biden are facing off in the election. Today is Election Day, and President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are facing off in a long-awaited contest. Both have been campaigning intensely for the last few days, and now it all comes down to the voters. Below you will find the live results and a live, updated map for Pennsylvania, a state that has been heavily fought for by both candidates. On the ballot in Pennsylvania are Trump, Biden, and Libertarian candidate Jo Jorgensen. In Pennsylvania, polls close at 8 p.m. Eastern. But the actual results could take much longer to come in, since votes can be counted as long as they are received within three days of the election, if they are postmarked by Election Day. In fact, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf appeared in an ad airing on Election Day...
    Getty Presidential candidates Donald Trump and Joe Biden exit their respective vehicles while campaigning in Florida. In the 2020 presidential election, Florida has emerged as one of the most pivotal swing states. If President Donald Trump wins Florida, his chances of winning re-election remain a strong possibility. If Democratic candidate Joe Biden pulls off a win in Florida, the former Vice President will have an early surge to victory. On November 3, Florida’s 29 electoral votes are up for grabs. Leading up to Election Day, polls presented “razor-thin margins,” as reported by The Washington Post‘s Aaron Blake. The only other swing state with more electoral votes is Texas. The polls in Florida close at 7 p.m. ET. The Decision Desk HQ map below shows which candidate has the lead in Florida on Tuesday. As the night proceeds, the results will update automatically as more votes are counted. While...
    Apart from that chipset, the K92 also packs a 6.7-inch FHD+ screen with a hole-punch to accommodate a 16-megapixel front-facing camera, along with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

If there’s one big draw aside from 5G, it’s the surprisingly flexible rear quad camera setup LG ran with.  The star of the show is a 64-megapixel standard camera with an f/1.78 aperture, and it’s flanked here by a 5-megapixel ultra-wide that captures a 115-degree field of view, plus two 2-megapixel sensors that gather depth information and shoot macro photos respectively.  It’s...

    Ballots are arriving at homes across Colorado this week. The state has had all-mail ballot elections since 2014, which has resulted in record turnout and, this year, many sighs of relief from people who do not have to vote in person during a pandemic (though vote centers will be open in every Colorado county for those who like the personal touch, lost their ballot...or even want to register on election day, as you can if you've lived in this state for 22 days by November 3). But this year, you’ll want to have plenty of time to consider your ballot, and maybe a few beers on hand (as well as the 2020 State Ballot Information Ballot, aka the “Blue Book,” that also arrived through the mail) as you dig deep into the issues.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — In campaign 2020 we hear a lot about the races for President, U.S Senate and Congress, but also at stake this November is a spot on the Minnesota Supreme Court. Incumbent Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Paul Thissen is facing perennial Minnesota Supreme Court candidate Michelle MacDonald who in her four runs for the high court has faced repeated controversies. “All I can say is it is fake news, my record speaks for itself,” MacDonald said. In 2013, MacDonald was convicted of refusing to submit to a sobriety test and obstructing the legal process — both misdemeanors. In the aftermath of her Representation of Sandra Grazzini Rucki, a Lakeville Mom convicted of hiding her daughters from their father, MacDonald was sanctioned by the Minnesota Supreme Court. “In 2018 the Minnesota Supreme Court suspended your law license to practice for 60 days and put you on supervised probation for...
    Republican Senator Lindsey Graham's reelection race to 'toss-up' status, as he faces an energetic opponent and President Donald Trump takes on severe headwinds – a flashing warning sig for Republicans seeking to keep control of the Senate.  The news, in a race ranking by a respected race-tracker, comes amid an onslaught of bad polling for President Donald Trump, who is battling COVID-19 at the White House this week. A new Quinnipiac University poll has Democrat Joe Biden leading Trump 51-40 in battleground Florida – a jump over a persistent but narrower Biden lead in a state Trump carried in 2016. It has Biden up 54 to 41 in Pennsylvania and 50 to 45 in Iowa, two other states Trump carried. President Donald Trump finds himself down in the polls after last week's first presidential debate The poll was taken after Trump interrupted Biden repeatedly at the first presidential debate, and...
    Michigan Supreme Court candidate Elizabeth Welch Donald Trump’s been open about what lies behind his Supreme Court blitzkrieg: At Tuesday’s trainwreck of a debate, he freely admitted: “I'm counting on them to look at the ballots, definitely.” Quite simply, he wants a pliant, stacked bench to tilt any election disputes in his favor. But the right’s decades-long crusade to shatter our judiciary is about so much more. Conservatives are frothing to watch the courts declare universal health care unconstitutional, erase Roe v. Wade, delete safety measures by the bushel, undermine any attempts to roll back climate change, enshrine voter suppression, and just generally usher in a dystopian hellscape where plutocrats will rule the wreckage while the rest of us suffer in dismal darkness. We have to fight back to protect the courts wherever we can, and the good news is, we can make huge strides this year in one of the most important...
    (CNN)Leading election forecasters have been steadily downgrading their ratings for Republican Senate candidates throughout the year, increasing the chances of a Democratic takeover viewed as unlikely only a few months ago. "Democratic chances of winning control of the chamber have improved significantly (in the last nine months)," write Nathan Gonzales and Jacob Rubashkin of Inside Elections. And in their latest ratings update, The Cook Political Report says Democrats are now a slight favorite to win the Senate majority. There are 35 Senate seats at stake this November, 12 of which are held by Democrats and 23 by Republicans. That gives the Republicans an inherent advantage. But since November of last year, that strong Republican defense has slowly been eroding, opening up the possibility for Democrats to net enough seats for a majority takeover. The number of states rated "Solidly Republican" by The Cook Political Report has shrunk from 13 to...
    Voter turnout under 6% may not seem like an achievement for democracy, but it made Texas Democrats optimistic Wednesday as they look to break Republicans’ statewide dominance this fall. A total of 955,735 people — 5.8% of registered voters — cast ballots in Tuesday’s Democratic runoffs. That is more than double the amount of votes cast in the 2018 Democratic runoffs, when a race for governor was at the top of the ticket instead of a race for a U.S. Senate seat. Party leaders said it was the highest raw number of votes cast in any Democratic primary runoff in history. That’s in large part due to the growing electorate, however. Turnout for the 1994 Democratic runoffs, featuring a U.S. Senate race between Dallas millionaire Richard Fisher and former Attorney General Jim Mattox, was 8.3%, though the number of votes was 746,641. Gilberto Hinojosa, chair of the Texas Democratic Party,...

    Over the past few decades the question of whether affirmative action is an appropriate antidote to centuries of discriminatory policies have animated the court system and voting booth. As Americans have become increasingly focused on systemic racism over the past several weeks, those questions have taken on new urgency. Now, California voters will have a chance to weigh in with potentially precedent-setting consequences for the way colleges consider race in admissions — one of the most hotly contested battlegrounds in the affirmative action debate. On Wednesday, the California Senate voted to approve California Assembly Constitutional Amendment No. 5, which seeks to repeal Proposition 209. The law, passed in 1996, bans the state from discriminating against or offering preferential treatment on the basis of race, gender and other criteria in hiring public employees, awarding public contracts and admissions to public universities in the state. If approved by voters,...
    Voters in California will decide this November whether to restore affirmative action in college admissions and government contracting. The proposal would reverse a 1996 constitutional amendment approved by 55 percent of voters that banned “preferential treatment” based on "race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin." Wednesday's 30-10 vote in the state legislature gave the measure the two-thirds majority required to put it on the ballot followed hours of emotional and personal debate. UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA REGENTS APPROVE BRINGING BACK AFFIRMATIVE ACTION  “I know about discrimination. I live it every day,” Democratic state Sen. Steven Bradford, who is black, said to his colleagues, according to the Sacramento Bee. “We live it in this building. Quit lying to yourselves and saying race is not a factor. ...

    Democratic senatorial candidate Jon Ossoff won Georgia’s primary election to take on Republican Sen. David Perdue in November. He won with 50.5% of the vote, just barely eclipsing the 50% needed to avoid a runoff, according to polling from The Associated Press and The New York Times. Ossoff’s emergence onto the political scene came in 2017, when he narrowly lost a special election in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District in what was at the time the most expensive House race in U.S. history. He lost the race to Republican Karen Handel, who lost her seat in 2018 to Democrat Lucy McBath. The election has become more competitive in recent months as Democrats view Georgia as a step to taking back the Senate in November. Once a reliably Republican state, it has trended toward the political center as its population has grown. (RELATED: Iowa GOP Rep. Steve King Loses Reelection To Primary...
